Title: TALDIS. Time and Linked Data in Space
Team: Richard Palmer
TALDIS is a visualisation of linked data in space and time, using the data visualisation technique of Space-Time Cubes. This demo video uses D3.js and A-Frame to create the WebVR browsable experience of a sample set of data. With improved support for WebVR in browsers, techniques such as this provide ways for users to explore linked data, without having to be immediately confronted with writing SPARQL queries. This would let a user get a sense of the data and perhaps immediately see patterns and clusters that they could then query further using more traditional linked data querying methods.
More complex visualisations such as categories, family trees, relationship network diagrams could also be implemented and displayed in the Space-Time Cube format. Developing these, refining the display for larger amounts of data, providing interactivity and creating a library to allow for use with any linked data set would be how this project would be further developed.
